In the annual show why i write, why i create, the expressive voices of artists and designers—sharing joys and worries, appreciations and frustrations—show how they cherish moments in their lives.

Their stories are displayed on large banners along with images of their visual art and designs.

In the 5th year retrospective (2015-2019), this collection of stories represents participants from more than 10 countries, working and middle class backgrounds, rural and urban, as well as first generation college students.

The show was interrupted from 2020-2022 due to the Covid pandemic, and beginning in August 2022, will continue with a retrospective traveling show to sites in Boston and the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
